Our Wash-Away Appliqué paper is now available by the roll! For those designs that just don’t fit on the 8.5” x 11” sheets, there is now a product that accommodates them!
And for those appliqué enthusiasts looking for more of a freezer paper experience, this new size fulfills that need.
But seriously folks, have you tried this product yet? This fusible paper provides precise results that are mind-blowing! Imagine using the tried and true freezer paper techniques without having to remove the freezer paper! The paper dissolves in just 1-2 washings and leaves behind a soft hand and a subtle fullness that is reminiscent of trapunto work. Because the paper is thicker than freezer paper, you only need one layer of it for a beautiful, crisp edge that allows you to turn over the edges of even the tiniest pieces!
Even more awesome is that is serves as a wonderful stabilizer for adding hand embroidery to your appliqué designs. Before sewing the pieces to your background fabric, add a few touches with thread without the distortion that hooping it can cause.
